This grand study surveys the emergence of Chicago from the swamps of southern Lake Michigan to the expulsion of the last Indian settlements.

Review quote

"An admirable book, well written and scholarly. The author strives to base his work on primary sources, and he is skillful in highlighting the significance of his subject. In addition, from the time of the French explorers until the end of the Indian presence in 1835, the narrative is dramatic." -- Donald J. Abramoske, Journal of Illinois Historyshow more
